New Zealand beat Australia

newzlandNew Zealand has prevailed in one of the greatest ever World Cup matches, holding off the late surge of Australia’s bowlers to win by one wicket at Eden Park.

New Zealand today became the first team to enter the Cricket World Cup quarterfinals, clinching a nerve-wrecking one-wicket triumph over four-time champions Australia after dismissing them for their second lowest tournament total in a Pool-A thriller here today.

In a low-scoring match that went right down to the wire, the nervous Kiwis huffed and puffed to victory after man of the match pacer Trent Boult’s career-best five-wicket haul had helped bowl out the Aussies for 151 in 32.2 overs at a packed Eden Park.
